Not until July 2009 did the Russian government declassify top secret documents, detailing UFO encounters with its Navy. The release came nearly 20 years after the fall of the Soviet Union and, even then, were rarely seen by the public until the recent past.
Stunning first-hand accounts of extraterrestrial encounters shocked the Russian people and ignited interest from the world’s UFO community. The following video details two such incidents. In one undated account, a Russian nuclear submarine discovered six disc-shaped objects approaching them in excess of 265 miles per hour in the South Pacific. The sub eventually surfaced, but so did the alien crafts, which then sped away at insane speeds.
Perhaps even more eerie, a group of Russian Navy divers, conducting a research mission in Lake Baikal, Siberia, in 1982, didn’t come across any alien crafts, but most likely the creatures that inhabit them. The frogman dropped to a depth of 50 meters when they suddenly realized they were being watched. To their surprise, they were confronted by humanoid figures, about 9-feet tall and wearing strange helmets of some sort. The Russians decided to capture one of the creatures, according to the documents, and the aliens reacted, initiating an unknown force that propelled all the divers to the surface. Of the seven Russian divers, three died in the incident, victims of decompression from the rapid rise to the surface. The aliens, meanwhile, disappeared.
